Here is a article on educating teachers on the CCSS.  One focus teachers need to be aware of the meta-cognitive strategies.

Norton Park Elementary School in Smyrna, Ga., recently held evening training sessions to familiarize parents and students with new Common Core State Standards. Among other things, the workshops included for parents hands-on activities aimed at providing an understanding of the changes ahead in math, language arts and other subjects. "I wanted teachers to be able to instruct parents as if they were the students in the classroom, in what the math is and how to do it," said Jennifer Gates, the school's academic coach.
